Very bad print quality with Ultimaker 2 and Small Object

Recommended Posts

I've a huge problem right now, and i really have no idea how to solve it. I'm trying to print a small cable holder, with is long a total of 53mm, but the quality of the print is quite bad, even at a very slow print speed (15mm/s).

I've tried increasing the temperature of the nozzle, but it seems like the material is getting dragged around a little bit, causing a very bad printing behavior.

Check this images to understand how it is working.




I've checked another thread and the forum about the issue, but I'm not able to solve it yet. Any idea?

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
